HE'S LIKE ABRAHAM NOW.

Sharp Delves Into Scripture to Find
His Parallel.

During a recess in the morning session, James Sharp, talking to those near him, said:

"There's no use to bring testimony here about what I did after this killing. Of course, I had my beard cut off. It was to disguise myself. Didn't Abraham, the father of us all, tell a lie to avoid the wicked? Didn't he say to his wife, because she was fair, that she was his sister? Am I better than Abraham?

"I offered to surrender to anybody who would take me. I was not afraid of arrest, but of being killed. And then the papers said I deserted my family. I didn't -- they deserted me. They were gone from the scene of the shooting before I left."
